Sandrine Deschaux RE/MAX Destiny I Reviews
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Sandrine sold/bought for me 6 years ago and it was such a positive experience that I signed her on to sell my condo and find me a single family home in the Inman Sq area...not an easy task for the summer of 2013. I started focused on finding a place in Cambridge but broadened my horizon to Somerville and Charlestown. Sandrine has deep knowledge of all 3 markets and helped me to have the patience to find the perfect home. I got a great deal on the new house and a really GREAT price for the condo that I sold. Sandrine knows the other agents in the area and she is a shrewd negotiator. I couldn't be happier. I've recommended Sandrine to all of my friends considering buying in the Cambridge/Somerville area and I'd recommend her to you too.
I have been working with Sandrine for a few years, she called me on a regular basis to let me know what is coming on the market. She knows her market very well and has a good working relationship with everyone in the business. She is always available to show me places, set up appointment. Several times, she put together housing analysis for me before we put in an offer. Housing market is very hot right now and Sandrine is definitely the person to get it done. In addition, she recommended me the lawyer to close the deal, help find the bank to finance the house and find the electrician, plumber when I renovated the place. She is very fair and honest which is very important to me. All in all, I trust her and would strongly recommend her to anyone.
Sandrine was absolutely incredible to work with. She added more value to the transaction than anything I could have ever hoped for. I have always dreaded the 5% transaction cost of selling a home, until I had the chance to work with Sandrine -- she added WAY more than that value to the transaction. She came in as an expert and quickly evaluated what type of small touch ups were needed to maximize value in the market and then helped me negotiate the best rates in the market to keep the costs of the work that needed to be done at a minimum. She was a brilliant marketer, helping me get almost 10 offers on the place in 4 days. And ultimately thanks to her negotiation skills, we sold the condo for 12% above the asking (and 50% more than what I bought it for in 2005). I could not have been more fortunate than to have found Sandrine.
Sandrine is a dream comes true when it comes to working with a Realtor. Finding a condo/house in this crazy market is as frustrating as going on endless dates over and over again and thinking you will never find the one and will eventually have to settle! Sandrine changed all of that for us!
Her extensive experience and background in the real estate market really made a difference in how we approach each open house viewing. She is always there to ask the right questions and to help us in making our offers compelling yet reasonable for us. Sandrine was there every step of the way even when she was on vacation; she was reachable to make sure we were on top of our offers.
Working with Sandrine was truly a 5-star experience, and I can’t wait to move into my home.
I really can't say enough good things about Sandrine. She was always willing to assist with any questions or concerns I had with answers and a smile. She brings a ton of experience and smarts to the table making my trip through this very dynamic market better than I would have imagined. Aside from being top-notch professionally she was also very personable and warm, making the process all the more enjoyable.
Sandrine is a true five star realtor for us. She listens to our suggestions and makes changes accordingly throughout the preparation stage and during the sell. She is on top of her "to do list" and keeps us informed with any thoughts or changes. we are very happy with our condo sell process with her and would definitely have her for any future property purchase/sell.
Sandrine was an excellent partner during the entire process. She was amazingly patient and a very strong grasp on the details of the entire process. Always accessible with suggestions and feedback. It was a delight to work with her.
Sandrine helped me buy my 1st home in 2005, and then when it was time to buy a bigger place in 2010, my husband and I naturally worked with her again. She is like a real estate therapist and counsellor. When work took us to NYC, she stood by us and rented our home until we decided to sell. Sandrine has always been on our side informing us on the market conditions and the options available to us. While I had some initial doubts about coming on the market in early Jan 2015 (winter, snow, low inventory), we trusted her advice and instinct completely. She had a clear plan around timing, staging, pricing, everything! Sandrine walked us through the pros and cons of each offer we received, and we ended up selecting a lucrative offer, $60K or 7% over asking! Sandrine stayed close to all the details, P&S, home inspection, even staying on top of our attorney. I tell my friends, I will never do a real estate deal in Boston without Sandrine. If I had my way, I would have Sandrine move to NYC, so she can help us buy a home in Manhattan. Her professionalism, responsiveness, attention to detail, organization, instinct, market knowledge are unparalleled! We really miss her, and I can't wait to work with her again.
My husband and I recently purchased a home with Sandrine, and she was excellent. We were interested in a condo in Inman Square (Cambridge, MA) where the market is extremely competitive. We knew that we needed someone knowledgeable and very experienced in the local market. We were particularly concerned about how the inspection might come back on this specific condo, but Sandrine walked us through the offer process and helped us to both protect our deposit and also negotiate for additional credits for upgrades we felt should be made. We had a particularly unresponsive seller, but Sandrine and the rest of our team worked hard to continually follow-up with them and make sure everything was on schedule throughout the process. I couldn't believe it, but at the end we closed on time and spent less than an hour at the closing table! What was most remarkable about Sandrine was that she was not only knowledgeable, but extremely calm and positive throughout the whole experience. As first-time homebuyers, we often felt stressed out when we were unable to obtain responses from the seller, but Sandrine continually reassured us and delivered at every turn. When we finally got to the closing table, everything was organized and laid out for us . . . and Sandrine was as excited as we were! We will certainly use her again when buying/selling in the Greater Boston area, and highly recommend her services.
I worked with Sandrine on the sale of my condo. Her knowledge of the market and professionalism in every aspect of the transaction made the sale an easy and agreeable experience. The closing was stress-free thanks to her attention to detail and skill in dealing with the various parties involved.
